World’s First VR Water Slide is Open Now

VR Water Slide

Check out this awesome new virtual reality waterslide which is now opened at Galaxy Erding in Germany, taking virtual reality to theme park rides in a somewhat different way. Riders are provided with a waterproof headset that can be fully submerged in water to a few meters and is powered by an integrated Samsung Galaxy S8 that runs custom software for the VR experiences.

According to Verge:

“Ballast — the company behind VRSlide — is viewing this as the first step toward a larger kind of aquatic VR setup, one that would see full, impressive tanks that users could swim in while in virtual reality. It sounds far more intriguing than simply strapping a headset onto a water slide, but unfortunately that system isn’t quite ready for commercial roll out just yet.”
